Brooke Stipelman , PhD
Dr. Stipelman is a Scientific Program Manager for Kelly Government Solutions providing support to the Science of Research and Technology Branch (SRTB) within the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). She is a member of the NCI Science of Team Science (SciTS) team, engaging in the research and evaluation of transdisciplinary initiatives relevant to collaborative team sciences. Dr. Stipelman received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the George Washington University, and her Master of Arts degree and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Maryland. Before becoming a contractor, Dr. Stipelman spent one year as a postdoctoral Cancer Research Training Award Fellow (CRTA) as part of the Evaluation of Large Initiatives (ELI) team within the OAD. Her duties as a CRTA fellow consisted primarily of project management and support for a number of on-going projects within the team such as a bibliometric study of the TTURC initiative and the creation of a web-based toolkit designed to evaluate and facilitate team science.
Current and past BRP mentors include Kara Hall.
